Aaaaand… we’re back.

| October 27, 2010

Well, it seems the cutover from the late, unlamented Movable Type installation to the shiny new WordPress engine was a good deal easier than I anticipated. To be honest, I’m not sure why I waited so long to do it. Sure, it still needs some tweaking here and there… but on the whole, what do […]

Due to heavy spammer activity doing bad things to my web server, comments are now closed, until such time as I get this blog converted over to WordPress. MovableType has outlived its usefulness.

It’s a girl!

Something like five years ago, Frank J. of IMAO and Sarah K. of Mountaineer Musings got hitched in what has turned out to be the most successful blog merge yet seen. Yesterday, they were blessed with their first child, affectionately referred to by all and sundry as Princess Buttercup. I can’t think of anything humorous […]

Greatest Americans

| August 19, 2010

Over at Right Wing News, John Hawkins has a followup to last week’s Worst Americans poll: Conservative Bloggers Select The 25 Greatest Figures In American History. I quickly banged out my list — bolded names made the Top 25. John Adams Neil Armstrong Norman Borlaug Luther Burbank Andrew Carnegie George Washington Carver Vint Cerf Thomas […]

Worst Americans

| August 13, 2010

Over at Right Wing News today: Conservative Bloggers Select The 25 Worst Figures In American History. Jim Geraghty, the man behind the Campaign Spot blog at NRO, questions the sanity of the contributing bloggers. I think he’s right. The problem here is that people are treating “worst figures” as though it means “least liked,” so […]

Blogiversary – Seven Years

| March 9, 2010

Seven years — 2,133 posts — 2,893 comments — a bit over 210,000 visits. I’m not a big fish in the pond. I’m not even a medium-sized fish. I’m not even sure I’m a multi-cellular organism. But I like it here. I’m not going anywhere. Some “greatest hits” and personal favorites: A promise. In 2007, […]

I’ve finally reached my limit with the people at Ever since they got bought out by Tucows, they have, plainly, sucked. Since my blogrolls were, essentially, broken, I’ve been using my copious free time to rebuild them so they display acceptably. Gone, sadly, are the slick little drop-downs. I liked those, but they are […]

I’ve gotten a ton of traffic this past week — the usual search result for “naked chicks with guns” having been supplanted as #1 by searches for pictures of curling. Odd, that. I can’t imagine why either would be a popular search…. For the record, I have in fact been watching a lot of curling […]

Milblogs Go Silent

| December 16, 2009

From John at Castle Argghhh!: On Wednesday 16 December 2009, many milblogs — including This Ain’t Hell, From My Position, Blackfive, Miss Ladybug, Boston Maggie, Grim’s Hall, Bouhammer, and those participating in the Wednesday Hero program — are going silent for the day. Some are choosing to go silent for a longer period of time. […]

For some reason, my referrer logs are chock full of people searching the web for pictures of “naked chicks with guns.” Said searches, of course, lead them to this post from 2005.
